Interactive Dress Moves and Glows When Someone’s Looking

Light Up Dresses

Some people just love it when the spotlight’s on them. Others, however, are not too keen on the extra attention. But if dresses had personalities, then these pieces by designer Ying Gao belong to the first category. They’re plain frocks at first glance, but they’ll literally light up and move once they feel your gaze upon them.

Gao worked with robotics designer Simon Laroche to create the two dresses collectively known as (No)where (Now)here. The dresses are equipped with eye-tracking sensors and motors; the former, to detect when someone’s looking at it, and the latter, to trigger the wave-like movement of the fabric. The glow is generated by the photoluminescent thread sown all over it.

This Pretty White Dress is Made Entirely Out of LEGO

LEGO Dress

Designer Rie Hosokai‘s creations are unusual not because of the designs per se, but because of the material that she chooses to work with. Earlier this year, Rie created a white dress made from balloons that was exhibited at the ”Piece for Peace” charity art exhibition held at the Parco Gallery in Tokyo.

The dress was simple enough with its puffy sleeves and balloon skirt made from “knitting” balloons together. Now Rie is back again with the same design but another material. This time, she chose to work with LEGO bricks.

3D Printed Bow Tie Is Super Easy To Wear

3D-printed-Bow-Tie

If you want to showcase your love for an emerging segment of the consumer electronics industry, while also letting the world know that you’re somewhat of a proud geek, you could do a lot worse than to don the above 3D printed bow tie. It’s easy to wear because you don’t tie it, you don’t buckle it, you simply slot it over the top button of your shirt and it holds in place. It’s light, distinguished and arguably elegant. What’s less exciting is the fact that you’ll have to pay $115 to own it if you don’t have a 3D printer of your own along with some CAD skills.

Raw Fashion: Meat Bags, Shoes, and Accessories

Meat Handbag

Raw doesn’t always translate into cutting edge. But that might be the case with this very unusual collection by artist Andrea Hasler that features meat handbags, accessories, and shoes. In case you’re wondering, she didn’t use real meat to come up with this series. She used a special type of wax instead that mimicked the look of raw meat.

Knowing that doesn’t really lessen the ick factor, does it?

Clutch Bag Looks Like A Bloody Cleaver

You’re probably going to want to pick and choose when you wear the above Kreepsville 666 Bloody Cleaver Clutch Bag.

We’re not sure if Peter Bristol created the Clip Bag to pay homage to one of the enduring staples of office life, the binder clip, but we sure do like the end product. Made out of wool felt and Aluminum tubing, the bag isn’t specifically being sold yet, although Peter does seem to be seeking commercial partner to bring this to market. You know how it goes: if there’s enough interest for something, it’ll eventually get made.

‘Ripe Tomato’ Haircut: Now You Can Be a Literal Veg Head

Tomato Hair

There’s nothing wrong with being a veg head–unless you take things too seriously and turn yourself into one literally. That’s what some people in Japan are doing after visiting an Osaka salon called Trick Store. Located at the city’s so-called hipster district in Amemura, a hairstylist named ‘Hiro’ has created one of the most unusual hairstyles we’ve ever seen so far: the ‘Ripe Tomato.’

The hairstyle is basically features a layered cut and a colorful dye job to turn people’s heads into giant man-tomatoes. Oh, the crazy things Japanese hairstylists come up with sometimes.

You Can Allegedly Wear This Shirt Non-Stop For 100 Days

woolandprince

We’re pretty certain this headline got the attention of at least some of you. Because, let’s face it, hardcore citizens of the Internet will likely grab any opportunity to remain hygienic without making any sort of effort. So if this shirt by Wool&Prince actually does what it claims, you could wear the same shirt for up to 100 days without ever washing or even ironing it. How? The company claims some kind of extra special wool fabric, extolling its moisture absorbing qualities (better than cotton, really?), its fold-resisting abilities, its superior durability and breathability. And this is no grandma’s itchy wool either; they’ve made sure to make this shirt extra soft. So you can crumple it up in a ball, toss it in a bag and have a shirt ready to wear right after a workout at the gym. No… shower required…

Yeah, we’re still going to be washing this thing and we’re not suggesting anyone actually go 100 days with the same shirt. But, if the claims are true, it appears you can. You’ll pay for the privilege, though, at $98 per shirt.
